Dyrham Park photos  
I've been a busy little bee today, so now I'm resting, drinking tea, eating biscuits and posting photos from the trip after the Bath ball. We had a lovely time, the weather was perfect, not too hot, and it only started to rain once we'd gone into the house, and stopped again before we went outside again! Any way,

In the shuttle bus on our way down to the house, I couldn't resist the chance for a silly incongruous photo!

Admiring the hyacinths:

On our way back to the cars to go home again, this is only half of our party :)

I took the chance, while we waited for the others, to get some photos of my new dress without spencer and bonnet to get in the way:

I've already started work on the ludicrously frilly chemisette to add even more sillyness :)

And a shot of Mummy without her hat, gazing into the distance :)

My kirtle is all ready for handsewing in Scotland, and I made a mocup of Mummy's, and we did a fitting, but it's not working too well at the moment, she's not very comfortable at all ... I'm going to change to a back opening, and try a curved centre front seam, and try putting more boning in for the fitting and see if that works any better, but not now! Now I'm going to play! I've pulled out my fabrics, found my inspiration pics and now I'm going to work out a pattern ready to start work on a new Regency bonnet, or maybe it'll end up a hat ... who knows :D

Thank you! I'm so glad I made one, I've wanted one for ages, and it will be so very useful in this climate!
